Green Coffee Beans and Foods That Go Well with Coffee

Coffee and food is a match made in sensory heaven. If you frequent any high-end restaurant in the United States or around the world for that matter, chefs often team up a plate with coffee. From breakfast to dessert for your main course at dinner, coffee is a delicious drink to sip with food. If you are hungry and craving a cup of coffee, there are many combinations of drink and food that will leave you full and totally satisfied.

If you are bored with the typical muffin to go along with your morning cup of coffee, we have good news. Smokin’ Beans Coffee Company, your source for green coffee beans, offer the perfect foods to go with your coffee.

Salted Almonds

Salted almonds are especially tasty when paired with a mint-flavored coffee drink.


Brownies are exceptionally tasty when eaten with a full-bodied coffee from Guatemala or Indonesia.


Biscotti is a very popular baked good that people have been enjoying with their coffee for many decades. Biscotti comes in a variety of flavors to suit any palate. Almond biscotti is classic, but you can try chocolate and cherry as well.


Paring savory crepes with coffee is a natural. Stuff your crepe with ingredients such as cheese, herbs, meats and vegetables and serve with a bold coffee. If you are enjoying an espresso, choose a sweet crepe, chocolate or Nutella perhaps.

Dried Cranberries

This might come as a shock, but dried cranberries taste divine sprinkled over the top of a caramel mocha.


Buttermints are the little party mints you might find in a bowl on the kitchen counter the last time your parents had a gathering. Slip a few of these into your coffee and they will melt and add flavor and texture to your coffee.

Fig Newtons

These will taste best if you warm them just a little bit and dunk them in your cappuccino.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

You will want to pair a creamy dessert like a red velvet cake with a Caffe Americano. There are other foods that go well with the Americano including cheesecake, macaroons and glazed donuts.


The only thing better than fried power sugar dough is fried powder sugar dough with coffee. This is thought by many to be the greatest coffee and food pairing known to man. We tend to agree.

Coffee Cake

Some might feel this is too obvious to post on this list. But here are our thoughts on it. When was the last time you had a piece of coffee cake? With so many other choices of baked goods and pastries out there, the simple coffee cake is often overlooked. It is fine time to revisit this perfect baked good.


The stroopwafel is a part of daily life for those in the Netherlands. The fact is that they think we Americans are a little weird for not serving this with coffee. You might have to find a specialty bakery to find this, but it is totally worth the effort.
